256986 Description of the Microsoft Windows registry
This article describes the available log levels for SoftGrid Client 3.x NTA. This article also describes how to enable an NTA log.
Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.
By default, the SoftGrid Client NTA log file is named Sftnta.txt. The Sftnta.txt file is located in the following folder:
Microsoft Windows desktop computers
%ProgramFiles%\Softricity\SoftGrid for Windows Desktops
%ProgramFiles%\Softricity\SoftGrid for Terminal Servers
Create a DWORD value (REG_DWORD) that is named NtaLogMask.
In the Value Data box, type the log level that you want. Then, under Base, select Hexadecimal.
Exit Registry Editor.
Stop the SoftGrid Client service. Then, restart the SoftGrid Client service.
Note The NTA log causes the Sftnta.txt file to grow fairly large over a short time. This action can adversely affect client performance. Only use the NTA log if Softricity support recommends that you use the log to diagnose specific client problems.
